CAAR, and sister association the Canadian Seed Growers Association (CSGA) are pleased to announce the launch of our latest project: The Investing in Certified Seed eLearning Program.

This training course, hosted on caar.org, offers certified seed training to agronomists and agri-retailers, with reduced pricing for CAAR and CSGA members. The course provides a fast and efficient way to build understanding of the certified seed system, the benefits and value of certified seed and what producers expect from their retailers.

“Seed retailers are important players in the value chain,” says Caroline Lafontaine, member services manager for the CSGA. “They are often the first, trusted voice seed buyers go to, so it becomes critical for retailers to understand what goes into certified seed, and the benefits it can bring to a farm.”

CAAR and the CSGA have partnered on this initiative to make this valuable learning tool available to all agri-retailers, with special discounts for their membership.

Says Lafontaine, “Educating our customers about the value of certified seed is a way to ensure Canada remains globally competitive, and has access to the best genetics and leading traits available.”
